Helena, MT High 97 Low 54
My sister’s granddaughter, Courtney, came to visit her grandma. This is a big deal because Courtney just got her driver’s license and a new-to-her car.
To celebrate the occasion, Courtney and Judy made peanut butter cookies. I got to enjoy the fruits of their labors. They were really good.
Courtney is going to be a Sophomore this year and has soccer tryouts next week. She’s sure hoping she makes the varsity squad.
I sure do love this RV lifestyle and all the wonderful people we get to meet. In April of 2010 we met Paul and Mary in Prescott, AZ. Spent some great times exploring the area with them.
We had thought that we were going to meet up with them in Kalispell along with Sue and Doug. But their air conditioner decided they needed to stay in Colorado for a lot longer and they didn’t make it to Montana this year.
Got an e-mail from them letting us know that friends of theirs were camped in Helena. We hooked up with Steve and Cathy on their last night in town and headed out for dinner at the Windbag Saloon on Last Chance Gulch.
The only way to finish up a great dinner is a stop at the ice cream parlor. Just look at the line on this hot summer night.
Three very happy people.(I’m not an ice cream lover so no cone for me.)
Steve, Cathy, and Jim
We then gave them a short tour of the Helena Valley and out to Lake Helena. Really enjoyed our time with them and look forward to seeing them somewhere on the road again.
(Paul and Mary – keep sending new friends our way.)
